I’m using this project as a warm up and brush control exercise before I work on a personal piece. This process seems to be working. I think I’ll keep doing that — keep two projects going at the same time.
I’m also pondering size. I want to work bigger than this but this 8.5 x 11 size is really manageable — I can turn the board really easily when I need to for controlling edges and water. But as far as finished pieces, I’d like to get comfortable with up to 24 x 36. I’m getting ahead of myself tho. Focus.
